Container Hibiscus Plants

Yellow Leaves

Anonymous added on April 23, 2014 | Answered

Why do leaves turn yellow on hibiscus plants? Also, have black spots like a mildew. I pick off three/four every day. Plants are in containers, plenty of sun and bloom beautifully. Help appreciated. Live in Texas where it's hot-hot but already turning yellow even in spring.
